Dentistry is an artistic endeavor. In dentistry, this is not an abstract notion. The ability for a patient to clean and maintain a healthy oral environment depends on having teeth that are shaped naturally. Very often the difference between great dentistry and something less-than great is the ability to restore teeth to their natural shape. This is the basis for healthy gums and beautiful smiles.
Artistic dentistry is our goal and it does not happen by accident. It takes time and effort.
